About the artwork

Library : What I enjoyed about painting this cabinet was that as well as being in the community, it is about the community.

It is outside a public library (Ranui Library), so I painted a huge pile of books waiting to be read.

This artwork is a bibliography of not just my favourite books, but a visual record of books by and about the local community.
